BE KIND, FOR EVERYONE YOU MEET IS FIGHTING A DIFFERENT BATTLE.PLATO
Hi all, welcome and thank you very much for visiting my site, bringing you into my world of paintings and poems. I have created videos of my paintings and poems for you to view and listen to. I have also selected special quotes as I feel this adds meaning and depth to my artwork.
I am a self-taught Irish Artist. However, I have studied in depth the work of many masters of painting over the years. Such as Monet Kadinsky, Vermeer, Munch, Dali and so many more.
I live in Cork, in the South of Ireland, which boosts to having the second-largest natural harbour in the world, so the sea is always nearby. There is a richness to the land and magnificence in its scenery. So, as you can imagine inspiration is all around.
My preferred medium oils, though I am also well, acquainted with watercolour and acrylic paints. I love to add texture, vibrant colours and movement to my paintings. Each painting is signed and varnished, some have been varnished many times. Where possible I recycle frames these are hand painted and varnished also. I love to experiment with different styles from abstract art, modern art, impressionism art, and contemporary art.
I invite you to please view my paintings and I hope you might find a special painting for you or maybe a special gift for someone you care for.
Each painting is precious and timeless.
100 Years of Pride
President Higgins has asked me to thank you for the Painting and Poem ‘100 Years of Pride’, which was recently presented to him. The President very much appreciates your thoughtfulness and sends his good wishes.
Light of Christ
I am the Proud owner of INSPIRATION! I renamed the painting THE LIGHT OF CHRIST because I immediately saw a cross in the centre of the sunshine. I am fascinated by the power of the sun that emits power and life to all things. When I pray, I love to look up at the sun and imagine Christ standing behind the sun; so, naturally, this painting is Sacred to me.
I live in the USA but my father’s family immigrated to America a century ago from Ireland! When I searched for a Special painting, I was immediately drawn to Wendy’s magnificent creation. I was delighted to imagine how my Irish roots, through Wendy, would Grace my home as well as Bless it.
Wendy and I have become friends and we are looking forward to meeting each other someday. How lovely life can be sometimes! Wendy has given me a closer relationship to my God and my Roots through her artful and poetic talents. She has touched my life with Joy…..a true Artist.

I commission the painting Sunburst from Wendy, I love the colours and textures, there is always something different to see in it. It warms and colours home beautifully. I also sell a selection of Wendys’ artwork in my store, P Cashell Antiques Store, 13 Winthrop Street Cork. These paintings are always a sensation with my customers.

I was delighted with the painting Trippy which I commissioned from Wendy. This beautiful painting was just what I wanted it is fun colourful and interesting. It is displayed in my clinic for all my customers to admire.
